Preventing Exploitation -
One Gift at a Time: Join Us on Giving Tuesday
As the calendar inches closer to the much-anticipated Giving Tuesday, the atmosphere is buzzing with excitement and anticipation. It's a day when the world unites in a spirit of generosity and compassion, setting aside the chaos of consumerism to focus on the true meaning of giving. At Beauty For Ashes, we are absolutely thrilled to be a part of this global movement. We've been working tirelessly behind the scenes, preparing to share our mission and vision with all of you. In the coming week, we can't wait to unveil more about who we are and what we stand for. We are committed to making a real impact in the lives of vulnerable girls, and we believe that together, we can create a brighter future for them. This year our goal is to break the cycle of two specific vulnerabilities those most vulnerable face: food and shelter. Our Healing House provides family style meals each and every day for breakfast lunch and dinner, and our home is designed to create a family loving environment. In order to cover the cost of food and shelter for the Healing House, which cares for 8 at-risk girls, we need to raise $15,000. So, stay tuned for exciting updates and opportunities to get involved as we gear up for Giving Tuesday – a day that promises to be filled with hope, compassion, and the power to make a difference.
We understand the importance of community and collaboration, and we want YOU to be a part of our journey to transform the lives of young girls in need. Over the coming week, we will be sharing in-depth information about our organization, our values, and the impactful work we do. We believe that together, we can be the catalyst for change, providing these girls with opportunities, support, and a chance at a brighter future. You can make an impact, and change a life. So, stay connected with us as we count down the days to Giving Tuesday, because it's not just a day for giving, but also a day for making lasting connections and leaving a positive mark on the world. Get ready to be inspired, get ready to take action, and get ready to be a part of something truly remarkable.
Break the Cycle of Vulnerability
Everyone needs safe, decent and stable housing, with an atmosphere of love to learn and grow in. All of our girls would be forced onto the streets without Beauty For Ashes Transition home. Our home provides for their immediate and basic needs, but our efforts go much deeper and further too.
Education is the key to breaking the cycle of vulnerability through the generations. Not only does education bring opportunity, identity, dignity and possibilities to exploited girls, but education can transform you and me. Without awareness that modern day slavery exists, we would not see the need.
We believe ending exploitation cannot be done by any one means, it must be done in community - by everyone. Our heart is to create communities unified by the passion to end exploitation. We are created for connection, and we can do more for each other and together than we can apart.
I’m a girl who born as a result of a prostitution. I opened my eyes finding myself moving from family to family, house to house, hand to hand. By the time I turned 20 years-old I had lived with 20 different families. They were not relatives, each one of those families have their own routine of life, system, habits, traditions, and culture and you have to fit in, sleeping time, eating time, talking time, watching time, if they are conservative you have to be conservative too, and if they are open minded you have to be like them too. It means you have to reformat yourself before putting your first step into each house. At the beginning this was very difficult, but with time it didn’t really matter to me as much as finding good treatment. Unfortunately, most of them they share the same rules. Nothing for free. you should be a babysitter, a housekeeper, a cook. Some families hit me or kicked me out because I didn’t do all what they want from me. Others I ran away from to save myself from being raped, abused, etc...
